Another story relating to it....

 

Sheldrick had the heart of a Lion

DAREDEVIL biker Sid Sheldrick will never forget the opening night at Paisley speedway.

It was April 1975 and he was just moments away from proudly leading out the UK’s newest speedway club.

Inside Love Street, more than 6,000 people waited in eager anticipation of their new favourites, christened the Paisley Lions, taking on National League big guns Birmingham.

And then the mood in the Love Street tunnel changed.

Sid, who is now 59 and living in Lytham St Annes, recalled: “It was one of the biggest nights of my life.

“I had raced in big meetings and for England but this topped the lot. The expectancy at Love Street was massive.

“Then promoter Neil McFarlane emerged and wished us all luck.

“He then said, ‘Sid, can I have a word?’ You always worried when Neil wanted a quiet word.

“Next minute he produced a real live lion and added, ‘I thought it would be a good idea to have a lion on the opening parade of our first ever meeting’. And with that, he handed me the lead!”

That was all of 36 years ago but when we ran a story just before New Year, asking Buddies if they recalled seeing Leo the lion cub at a petrol station in 1975 in Beith Road, Johnstone, the penny dropped.

Could this be the same lion that Sid led out ‘bravely’ on opening night at Love Street?

Not that there were many lions roaming the streets of Paisley in the 1970s

I haven't been caught out doing anything ya looney. I posted that Scott Allan was signing for Rangers. Later that day Rangers made their initial bid. That came directly from Scott Allans brother. No lie. OK there was a lie from Hibs when they said before he signed his contract he could leave but that is his agents fault.

 

'Lost Count'  :roll:

 

Only yesterday during your nightmare you accused me of not naming Rangers...I had named them in my original post. Today you said i had lied about a Lion. Another nightmare from you

In one post you singled out celtic , dont care if mentioned the rangers once or 30 times before it , you still singled out celtic in a different post.

I think you are the looney tbf , " welcome to rangers scott " guy goes to celtic , how embarrassing.

Then the rest of the howlers you have made to try look in the know , name dropping etc

All very needy.

Thats the scoopman for ya :D

This place has been quite refreshing since Craigs post about dredging up the past and keeping old arguments on the boil, can you guys keep it friendly before this one goes off the rails................sure disagree and even have banter but keep it civil, like you are at the moment.

Before it goes off the rails? We have gone from attendances to Shagging dead giraffes to Lions as Guard Dogs. TBH Cam i am not sure we could possibly take it more off the rails  ;-)
